When Monark was first announced, it got plenty of fans talking, Bringing in a wide array of ex-Atlus talent, multiple staff members had previously worked on Shin Megami Tense.
It didn’t take long before details of their ‘New School RPG’ were announced, and now we have further information thanks to Western publishers NIS America. Here's what we know so far.
Monark Game: Western Release Date, Trailer, Battle System, And More
Monark - Release Date
Monark launches on February 22nd, 2022 in North America, seeing a simultaneous release for all platforms. However, European fans will have to wait slightly longer, where it instead arrives on February 25th. Japan and Asia get an earlier launch in this case, where it'll release on October 14th.
Monark - Demo
In Japan, a demo recently dropped for Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 which carries over your save data, just one week before launch. NIS America's yet to confirm if we'll receive something similar in the West, though we'll keep you informed if that changes.
Monark - Platforms
Monark is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. At this time, an Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S launch hasn't been announced, but we'll keep you updated if that changes.
Monark - Trailer
You can check out the Monark Trailer below. That details the story, several characters, and the combat.
Monark - Free Movement Battle System
In the trailer, we get a glimpse of the self-dubbed ‘Free Movement Battle System’ in Monark, which is a departure from mainline SMT games. Looking more like Fire Emblem, players will control ‘Fiends’ in fields, commanding them to attack their foes.
Players will also be able to customize the look of their Fiends and it will be interesting to see if they need to be persuaded to join the player ala SMT.
Monark - English And Japanese Voice Acting
Whether you prefer subtitles or dubbed voice acting, fear not. NIS America's confirmed that Monark's Western release will include both.
